We want our music culture to be safe and inclusive. Onerous and ill-considered regulation will not save lives. And the State Government is decimating our music culture in the process. 
 
The NSW State Government is vilifying live music with knee-jerk regulation (more details here). Instead of consulting with festival experts, the NSW Government imposed punitive regulation that specifically targets music
festivals, and music fans.
 
We demand that the State Government:

  • To reconsider the proposed music festival license and delay any commencement until after the NSW election due to the following: 

  1. There is too much uncertainty for festival operators as to how the proposed regulatory system would work. Festival operators have not been adequately consulted and the impacts of the proposed changes are not understood by industry or any stakeholders.

  2. The Berejiklian Government continues to show reckless indifference to the economic impacts that the proposed regulations will impose, by rushing the new regulations through in an attempt to have them implemented prior to the commencement of the 'caretaker period', when parliament is dissolved prior to the election.

  3. The current regulatory body is not equipped to regulate music festivals. Their mandate is around liquor and gaming, they have zero understanding of the nuances of music festival operation or knowledge of local area needs, in the way that local councils and venues have.
     

  • Delay the implementation of the new license date of March 1st of the proposed Music Festival License regulation until further consultation has taken place

  • Delay the implementation of the new licence date of March 1st until a Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) has been completed

  • Form a music regulation roundtable to review all regulation impacting live music

  • Immediately undertake a Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) for any proposed legislation impacting music festivals

  • Develop an industry standard with full transparency for user-pays policing and medical services

  • Work with the music industry to develop robust, effective and achievable safety protocols for festivals

 
Don’t let the Premier Berejiklian and the State Government take music away from you. You deserve better. NSW deserves better. Please see the list of signatories and supporters below…
